Kingston, Jamaica will have the signal honour of hosting the annual conference of Rotary International – District 7020.  The event, slated for April 29 to May 4, 2019 -  will see over 500 delegates meeting at the Jamaica Pegasus to chart the course of international service that has benefited communities across the world.

District Governor of Rotary International District 7020, Dr Patrick Adizua noted:  “Rotary has a legacy of proud achievements and it is the satisfaction we enjoy from seeing our fellowman benefit from the labour that motivates us to deliver beyond expectations.”

At Rotary District 7020 Conference 2019, Jamaica's Rotarians will host colleagues from District 7020 member countries including: The Cayman Islands, Anguilla, The Bahamas, Turks & Caicos Islands, Haiti, St. Croix, St. Martin, US Virgin Islands, British Virgin Islands, French West Indies, Netherland Antilles, St. Thomas and Tortola.

“This is an opportunity for our island to shine and we know that based on past experiences in other host cities, the financial benefits for Kingston and Jamaica, in general, will be phenomenal,” Adizua said.

 He said the conference planning committee is focused on developing a programme that promotes Kingston and Jamaica as an ideal venue for leisure, investment and corporate pursuits.  We will provide an experience so wholesome and positive that our visitors will wish to further explore our island either on this visit or a subsequent one.”

Adizua said that his team intends to make this convention the best organized and largest to date, targeting a record number of over 500 delegates.

 Special events during the week include a ceremonial opening event, a “Jamaica Welcome” reggae party and a formal black tie dinner.
